    Open Autocad, draw an x at 0,0,0 then append that into Navisworks would be the easiest way I can think of right now but, then again, I've been staring at a model with 775 drawings in it trying to adjudicate 10,300 clashes for the past few days so, my ideas are a bit limited in the thinking part of things right now..


    If you have a grid in one of your models, that might help as well..
    Give a man AutoCad, and he'll draw you a floor plan.
    Give a man Revit and he'll build you a house.
    Give Cadmama a couple of drinks and she'll have everyone singing Rockytop!

    Thanks Paul, thats a good idea.
    I'll use that for now, maybe always.
    Any other ideas?

    Not sure what you're after but I've seen this and it works fairly well

    Create a small 3D object (a cube with a slice off one corner) and have it's corner located at 0,0,0.
    Lock its layer.
    Have every trade place that in their drawing at 0,0,0.
    That gives you a visual reference of how far off someone is off in the model, or if there is a transform override active.

    I've attached one for your use.
